Lately, I've been hard at work redesigning these children's book covers. Whoa, did I just say hard at work? That's right. This slack bastard has been burning the midnight, or should I say, 5am oil. Above are a few character design concepts I've been working on. Me likes me blue lead. I thought I'd lost my trusty mech-pencil containing said blue lead on the move to San Diego. How I've missed you so, my trusty mech-pencil containing said blue lead that I thought I had lost.
Anyhoo, I finally have something to hang my heavy bag on. Jenn got me this nifty heavy bag stand with an equally nifty speed bag for me as a happy belated birthday/Christmas present. It's been awhile since I've done anything close to exercising. I'm not really sure if walking upstairs counts. I really haven't found anyone to spar around here so my new present is a great alternative for the meantime. I even hung my trusty helmet on the heavy bag to simulate a sparring partner or diabolical evil supervillain. Though I was able to fight a few short last minute rounds at the WEKAF regionals, I won't be able to make it to the nationals on account of much more important matters (hint, hint: wedding) and the fact that I've turned into a lazy, out-of-shape eskrimador. But with this new nifty heavy bag setup, I'm on my way to returning to my former sexy beast self.
